    1. I thought it was an issue worth posting about. Some people have a Spotify accounts and believe that they're helping the musicians earn a living, which is not quite true at the moment. They're only helping if they discover new music on Spotify and then go out and buy the record or see the band play live. If they're only streaming their music then they're only helping the middlemen make money. The sad thing is that the mainstream press is pushing streaming services as a fair way to compensate artists for their work when it's actually just corporations reinventing their exploitative practice. Or so it seems to me.
